The complexity description says: "It does at most 2N calls to the copy constructor of T and logN reallocations if they are just input iterators ...".
This appears to be overly restrictive, dictating the precise memory/performance tradeoff for the implementor.
Change 188.8.131.52 [vector.cons], paragraph 1 to:
-1- Complexity: The constructor template <class InputIterator> vector(InputIterator first, InputIterator last) makes only N calls to the copy constructor of T (where N is the distance between first and last) and no reallocations if iterators first and last are of forward, bidirectional, or random access categories. It makes order N calls to the copy constructor of T and order logN reallocations if they are just input iterators.
"at most 2N calls" is correct only if the growth factor is greater than or equal to 2.
